HMD Global-owned Finnish smartphone maker Nokia may be close to launching its Nokia 9 flagship smartphone at MWC this month, but reports are coming in of a new mid-range device that may also debut at the event, called as the Nokia 7 Plus.
According to a report by GizmoChina, the Nokia 7 Plus was first heard about during the unpacking of the Nokia Camera app and then a Geekbench listing last week shed more light on the product. Now additional details have emerged about the phone, which show that the device could be the first Nokia smartphone with an 18:9 bezel-less display.
The report by Ithome tells us that the device may have 6-inch display along with a dual-camera implementation of 12 MP + 13 MP sensors at the back. On the front, the device should feature a 16 MP sensor with Carl Zeiss optics. The phone is also reportedly going to have the Nokia OZO 360 degree spatial audio technology, which was last seen on the Nokia 8 along with quick charge and Android Oreo 8.0 out of the box.
The phone should have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC powering it as seen on the Geekbench listing alongside 4 GB of RAM. Other features should remain the same as seen in the Nokia 7 and the device is expected to be priced at around $300 or so. To recall the Nokia 7 was launched back in October for the Chinese market, however, a global launch should happen in early 2018.
